On Sunday December 17, 2012, two days after the Connecticut shooting, a man went to a restaurant in San Antonio to kill his ex-girlfriend. After he shot (and wounded) her, most of the people in the restaurant fled next door to a theater.
The gunman followed them and entered the theater so he could shoot more people. He started shooting and people in the theater started running and screaming.
It’s like the Aurora, CO theater story plus a restaurant!
Now aren’t you wondering why this isn’t a lead story in the national media along with the school shooting?
There was an off duty county deputy at the theater. SHE pulled out her gun and shot the man 4 times before he had a chance to kill anyone.
Only the local media covered it. The city is giving her a medal. Just thought you’d like to know.
So since this story makes the point that the best thing to stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun, the media is treating it like it never happened.
